As of today I don't see the Ultimate Package in the configuration tool. Just the bronze accents, multi function seat, vented seats and laser headlight....

Anyone else? Any news?

ETA: At least on the configuration tool...all the options from the Ultimate Package are just included in the build, without the $7,700 Ultimate Package. Did BMW just throw all these in for free to make up for the loss of the $7,500 tax credit? Or is the website just buggy?

The Ultimate Package does not show on the build and price site, but its features are not listed as standard. In the screenshot above, the pricing (93,375) reflects the inclusion of the Ultimate Package so the features are definitely not free.

Yeah, base price for 2023 is around 84k, so for 93k one would assume options were included.

Update: I went to bmwusa.com, I do see that package is gone and my total is around 86K. Probably a glitch on their website.

Yeah. I'm seeing the same thing. And I'm not seeing a phantom price uptick. As I add options (such as leather, perforated seats, etc.) the price ticks up by the correct amount and no more. Not given an option for the Ultimate package and the only available options are the Titanium Bronze Exterior Trim, Front ventilated seats, Multi-function Seats, and the LED Headlights with Laserlight. Nothing else (other than BWM Ultimate Care+.

Hopefully a configurator glitch, but it does seem these glitches happen when they are making an update. Mine hasn't locked in yet (still waiting...) so I'll be watching to see if they are making changes.

Same thing happened to my reservation. My price dropped by the cost of the Ultimate Package, but I want that package. I followed up with my dealer but haven't heard back. If they don't include that package, or at least the options included in the package, then I don't want the car.

I do see the package missing but don’t see the options included at the summary page or in the “standard options”.

Are these not the Ultimate Features listed here? These show up without selecting Ultimate (which isn't available). These show up regardless of the options you select...which to me looks like they're included "standard"...I get to $93k with Sport, 22" wheels, Leather, Lasers, and Multi-Seats.

I also asked my sales associate and he says he doesn't know what's up. If BMW decided to offset the lost $7,500 tax credit with a free Ultimate Package I wouldn't say no...hah...

They are the Ultimate Package features, but I can't believe that BMW would forego the $7,700 price tag for those. If that's what they're going to do, however, then that's great. But I suspect BMW isn't feeling that generous.

How do you see the list of featured pictures above when you do a build on the website? When I do it, it doesn't show any of that detail. Looks the same as the right side of the pic, but the left side is totally different.

For me it's just there when I'm on the Summary tab. Just scroll down.
Definitely not there for me, even when I scroll down; nothing remotely like it. Just a regurgitation of the few basic trims and options it let me select and the final price with some pics of the car above and below that and a link to print.

Why would it be different for different people?

If this package is indeed gone, just as the i4 E40 RWD no longer has Drivers assist and parking assistance pro packages... those on the waitlist might want to start grabbing what is available in the pipeline now

I can help.

In Europe they force you to choose in ix40 a ultimate/essence pack with comfort access, dap, pap, hud, hk, 5g sim, 4zone ac and wireless charging).
And in iX50 in addition theskyroof, active steering, air suspension, Trailer hitch, heated panels and soft close doors.

Cannot be deleted and it’s added to the base price, confirmed with sales person.

You can add ventilated seats, memory /massage seat (passenger excluded), laser light and wheels.

Yep, same. Gone, either temporarily or for good. M60 seems to have everything, but not the iX50. They are NOT in the Summary or in Standard Features.

Was just told by my dealer there will be an Ultimate Package 2. They're eliminating some items like interior camera due to supply chain issues. These problems happen when you support your enemy (C-h-i-na) and have to get stuff by funding their war efforts against you. Did not say what other items are eliminated but he did say it will be on the site soon.

In Portugal and other European countries you cannot get the interior camera as well. The ix40 also can’t have the rear wheel steering, air suspension and soft close. (iX50 / 60 only).

I wonder what happens with orders previously placed? They took a deposit from me over a month ago, but still not clear that BMW ever initiated the order. Every time I ask the dealer they dance around the topic. Definitely won't accept paying the same fee for a deal I already made but with less features, even if that means walking away.

A few sites are already listing "Ultimate Package 2" with identical features to the original Ultimate Package but $100 less and missing the interior camera as the only difference.

Confirmed as described above...and it's back as Ultimate Package 2 for $7,600 instead of $7,700. No option to NOT purchase it either, looks to be bundled in with the car.
